    I have never had a pair of real stag grips. When your hands get sweaty, are they slick or do they have a natural tackiness/roughness to them???

    The ones I have stay pretty tacky due to the texture. But I have a set of giraffe bone grips that are smooth and they get slick as crap when wet. YMMV.

    That was kind of what I was thinking, but I just didn't know. I know that ivory has a natural "grip" to it unless it is highly polished.

    I am signed up for two of Bobby Tyler's .357/9mm Vaqueros. I am doing a few mods with him on these like a power custom Trigger/Hammer conversion. http://powercustom.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=12&products_id=1123

    Nitre blued pins and screws, high polish blue barrel, cylinders and grip frame. I hope that Bobby can give me a frame CCH like this beautiful Blackhawk.

    20170812_194623.jpg Have several sets of 50+ year old Sambar stag grips that I have had all the bark removed from. Even though they are very smooth they are more grippy than ivory.

    I will keep this in mind, but these pistols are a custom run through Tyler Gun Works and I want to see what Bobby can do first.

    Only antler/horn pistol grips I've used have been elk not sambar. Elk with some bark is quite grippy. 001.JPG

    Tyler's stag is good, at least to my taste.

    Did you buy one of his Vaqueros? You have to show us in a separate thread!

    Being as no one has posted any of Patrick's ( Grashorn Gun Works) smooth grips for you I will. Probably have 40+ pair he has done for me. All work excellent thought you need to tell him exactly how you want them otherwise he leaves them a bit thick. From top boned Elk, boned Elk and Rams Horn. The latter is the grippiest. 20170812_233250.jpg

    Grashorn does excellent work, I've bad several sets that he has made. I've never noticed any of my bone or horn grips to be slippery, they all have a bit of grippiness to them, even the smooth ones. They do tend to be cut thicker than wood, though.

    By the way, WC, sorry it took so long to get the pics posted.

    I like the character of the stag.
